Last Tuesday, we loaded up the minibus with our Harvest Festival food and took it down to the Salvation Army in Ramsgate.

Everybody there was really kind and welcoming. It wasn’t what we were expecting as it was really busy with lots of people helping out!

We were each given some jobs to do. One of the jobs was to make up food parcels for families in need. Each food parcel contained: cereal, milk, vegetables, tomato sauce, pasta, biscuits, tinned foods and potatoes.

We also had to do some food sorting where we separated food parcels that had originally been made up for lorry drivers caught up in Operation Stack; they were no longer needed so had been donated to the Salvation Army.

We really enjoyed the visit and it was great to be able to do something for others and give back to the community. It was amazing to see so many people wanting to help others too.
